Why the world works this way. For some reason universe and nature does work this way though. I don't know the answers.
Personally, I'm going through a little loneliness depression and of course little bit of broken heart.. but after I read other stories here, my sorrow is probably nothing I guess.
Hi, battery. I'm glad you found this site.
You ask a hard question. I've asked myself that so many times. And still ask it. The only thing I come up with is, that's the way the world works. Seems pretty lame but that's the only answer that doesn't make me crazy. I guess if we are on our own with our free will, I decided to try and be helpful and kind whenever I can. And sometimes I can't because my moods overwhelm me and everything looks dark. But that passes and I can return to my default.
Because if it's a choice, then being kind and helpful, and trying to be happy is the choice I want to make, because It feels better. It's not always easy. But I work at it.
And I see the same in so many others here. They share their stories of pain and then come back and offer support and kindness to others hurting. Pretty inspiring. That's what keeps me coming back here. I see the strength and resilience of the human spirit - not in a religious sense, but in the goodness of people.
I hope you are finding a way out of your loneliness and depression. I hope you find support here.
